Patrick Finnegan is a venture capitalist and entrepreneur with more than 150 companies under his belt. He has always dedicated himself to the causes he believes in, ever since gaining recognition as an 11-year-old fundraising for then-Senator Obama’s first presidential campaign. At age 20, Mr. Finnegan pivoted toward a value-add investment approach and created a small fund to engage the elusive and highly sought-after Gen-Z market. With an innovative process cultivated through years of firsthand experience, his incredible outreach of social media influence, and a large network of invaluable connections, he has invested in a significant amount of the hottest companies in recent history and is now onto his third fund. His early investments — which include lifestyle brands Starface, WinkyLux, Poppi, Augustinus Bader, Quip, PicsArt, Hims, Bumble, Parade, Owner, Public, and Moov ‑ illustrate Mr. Finnegan’s professional savvy and varied taste.
